Model Info: The iconic ‘RT’ represented standardised double deck bus operation in Central and suburban London and the surrounding Country Area from the 1940s to the 1970s.
South London bus route 75 from Woolwich to Croydon dates back to 1912. RT types were introduced to the route in 1950 and continued in daily service for the next 27 years. Our model depicts RT3853, registered LLU 652, which performed the final duty into Catford Garage on 25th February 1977, bringing crew operation with driver and conductor on the 75s to an end.
